Linda Connor has spent more than twenty-five years exploring and investigating exotic and spiritual places. A frequent visitor to India, Mexico, Thailand, Ireland, Peru, Nepal, Egypt, Hawaii and the American Southwest, Connor takes her 8 x 10" view camera on a pilgrimage into our history. What she reveals is a past filled with presence; a past which informs and molds our world today.

Among her various images is a photograph of a ceremonial cloth carefully wrapped around a tree trunk in Bali; petroglyphs hidden in the cliff dwellings of Arizona; magnificent star trails captured in Mexico and votive candles meticulously arranged for ceremonial rites at Chartres.

Connor's photographs have appeared in numerous books, including Spiral Journey, published for her mid-career retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in 1990. She is the recipient of many awards including a 1988 & 1976 NEA and a 1979 Guggenheim Fellowship. Her work is part of numerous collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Museum of Modern Art (NYC), The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
